Flowers left for Napoleon Knight
Of all that I have read about Napoleon Knight and the 1st Delaware Cavalry, I have come to realize he was a politically connected young man of 21 put in charge of a Regiment. He was not up to the task. Reading a very good diary of a Seargent of the Unit, he seems to have had a drinking problem and did not have the respect of his men. He treated them poorly. He was dismissed from the Service. I wonder if all this came into play, when he decide to go all the way to Oregon after the war. Charles Corbit was the "unofficial" leader of the 1st Delaware Cavalry.
